Lee is a lecturer and researcher, currently working out of Deakin University in Australia. Before moving to Australia in 2018, Lee spent 6 years at the University of Stirling School of Sport lecturing in Health and Exercise Sciences. Prior to that, Lee spent three years as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Dundee, where he also completed a PhD in Molecular Exercise physiology between 2005 and 2009 and a BSc (Hons) in Sports Biomedicine between 2001 and 2005.
As a molecular exercise physiologist, Lee’s primary research interests are in understanding the molecular basis of skeletal muscle adaptations (or maladaptations) to physical activity (or inactivity) and nutrition. More specifically, he is interested in the role of kinase-phosphorylation cascades in the adaptive responses to various modes of exercise.
